Short Bytes: Turning the concept of exoskeletons into a reality, a mechanical engineer has devised a homemade exoskeleton that allows him to lift up the back of a 2,524 lb Mini Cooper. He aims to make a full-body exoskeleton in near future.
Along the same lines, inventor James Hobson, also known as The Hacksmith, has built an exoskeleton that allows him to pick up the back of a 2,524 lb Mini Cooper.
Earlier, inspired by the movie Elysium, this mechanical engineer made an exoskeleton that allowed him to pick up 275 lb-Olympic weights.
The Hacksmith mentions that he wishes to make a full-body exoskeleton. “While advancing battery technology will expand powered exoskeleton suits’ potential greatly, I believe the next breakthrough in functional exoskeletons is much more simple. It’s all about mechanical advantage,” he says.
